No need to worry. I am pretty sure that for the next 20 years or more you'd be OK to find parts and have a car serviced even if it had been discontinued. GM uses a lot of badge engineering meaning same parts are used across various divisions. So, you'll still be able to find parts.

Heck , I can still find ,some, parts for my 84 Lincoln Mark VII. If you look hard enough you can find the parts for many decades after the vehicle is out of production. And, the thing your looking at is new enough that you shouldn't have any trouble I'd think.

The Jeep Liberty can be towed flat if you have the right 4WD system although its curb weight is aboug 300 lbs higher.

I never had problems getting my Renault serviced at the local Jeep/Eagle dealer long after Chrysler dumped the AMC and Renault brands when they bought AMC in 1987.

I have an 09 saturn outlook that we tow. so far so good on it. Just got a letter from GMC telling us of a recall. Something about the mocule that ells you when you should change the oil. Has to be done more frequently than the current module tells you. so they are still out there working for us. Honestly th,. I had had an envoy before the outlook and wanted to trade for an acadia. (GMC) Husbaand insisted on the outlook. It is ok, but doesnt have the "truck" feel of the envoy. I liked that feel.
